BBCR Innovation Approach

  1. 1. Boston Biotech Clinical Research Leading the SCIO Revolution
  2. 2. SCIO The new class of service Strategic Clinical Innovation Organization
  3. 3. What Are the Traditional CROs Missing? <ul><li>Strategic planning and projection for decision analysis </li></ul><ul><li>Integration with current Regulatory guidance parameters </li></ul><ul><li>Customized protocols to maximize your research results </li></ul><ul><li>Execution to focus on the right patients, the right indications </li></ul>
  4. 4. What is the Problem ? <ul><li>Gaps appear in the development process that may cost success and money </li></ul><ul><li>Protocols written for top line visualization that may be lacking scientific rigor </li></ul><ul><li>Protocols and clinical studies may become myopic and miss greater options </li></ul><ul><li>Increasing Regulatory demand for transparent study results and cross AEs </li></ul>
  5. 5. Bridging the Chasm between Research and FPI BBCR Service Safety / Tox Data Discovery Data Bio markers Trial Design Objectives/ Endpoints Patients Selection Patients Safety Regulation Disease Staging/ KOL Protocol Synopsis Patients’ Needs
  6. 6. Current Methods Create Gaps <ul><li>Breaks in the outsourcing expertise between preclinical research and CRO </li></ul><ul><li>Current Clinical development approach does not allow integration of product specifications into a human treatment </li></ul><ul><li>Unfocused Strategic view leads to a non-cohesive clinical plan </li></ul><ul><li>Lack of Innovative approach for strategic study design delays cost-efficient solutions based on updated regulations and rulings </li></ul><ul><li>Failure to identify the proper strategic therapeutic indication and target patient population fulfilling the study objective/s </li></ul><ul><li>Misalignment between Sponsor and CRO on goals and growth achievements, with conflict of interest on objectives </li></ul>
  7. 7. SCIO fills the gap <ul><li>The SCIO process is crafted to use strategic thinking and innovation in clinical/medical expertise to improve the sponsor's goals and ability to meet those goals . SCIO success depends on meeting actionable endpoints and sponsor’s goals , not on completing a large number of studies or enrolling a lot of patients. </li></ul><ul><li>BBCR methods produce top line benefits that: </li></ul><ul><li>Link preclinical data with market opportunity </li></ul><ul><li>Move the product into first in man </li></ul><ul><li>Create cohesive phase l/ll studies that support POC </li></ul><ul><li>Match the study endpoint/s with study objectives </li></ul><ul><li>Develop a product specific protocol that connects product potentials to treatment benefit </li></ul>
  8. 9. BBCR Follows the New Paradigm <ul><li>No step by step development, requires the creation of a complete clinical plan up-front </li></ul><ul><li>Moves away from a silos approach towards a translational medicine process during exploratory stage </li></ul><ul><li>Allows to test safety in patients vs. healthy volunteers </li></ul><ul><li>Allows evaluation of efficacy early </li></ul><ul><li>Potentially reduces study time and patient number </li></ul><ul><li>Requires an early dialogue with the regulators </li></ul><ul><li>Requires SCIO expertise for all the above </li></ul>
  9. 10. New Paradigm seeks to Mitigate Trial Implementation Challenges <ul><li>Clinical Operation </li></ul><ul><li>Low interest in study participation </li></ul><ul><li>Slow IRB review and patient enrollment </li></ul><ul><li>Difficult study management and poor compliance </li></ul><ul><li>Laborious data cleanup </li></ul><ul><li>Unsatisfactory data results </li></ul><ul><li>Finance </li></ul><ul><li>Trial high cost </li></ul><ul><li>Unpredictable budget </li></ul><ul><li>Miss timeline ’s milestones </li></ul>
  10. 11. Strategic Clinical Innovation Organization <ul><li>Develop Early Roadmap </li></ul><ul><li>Strategic Clinical Plan </li></ul><ul><li>Implement FDA innovation </li></ul><ul><li>Customize trial design </li></ul><ul><li>Optimize patient selection </li></ul><ul><li>Integrate plans and strategies </li></ul><ul><li>Maximize product-value </li></ul>

  14. 15. Velaglucerase Alpha (Gene Activated Glucorerebrosidase) for Gaucher diseases Type 1 Case study of Strategic Clinical Innovation Problem : Develop the product avoiding a “me too” treatment in an orphan population when a very similar product had a market monopoly for 15 years. Solution : Created a clinical innovative strategy and trial designs that avoided the obvious head to head design, which would had required an unfeasible number of patients, and be at high risk to prove efficacy and safety in this population. Worked with the Regulatory agency upfront to validate approach, clearly identify endpoints and patient population expectations verses current standards of care.
